To convert from shp

Key normalization

Municipalities

see the wikipedia as well : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Municipalities_of_Colombia

Ways

For the ways this should be enough:

<tag k="admin_level" v="6"/>
<tag k="boundary" v="administrative"/>
<tag k="source" v="OCHA - SIGOT" />

(Using the boundary=administrative tag)

Relations

Keys that should go in the relations and NOT in the ways
Original key Suggested key change Comment
name No change Not-nouns such as de, del, de la on a non-leading position should be lower-case, i.e. Belén De Umbría -> Belén de Umbría
DEPARTAMEN is_in:state Should not be all in CAPS
CODANE divipola The same as in the April 2010 import of places from OCHA. We could change it to something like DANE:municipio in the near future.
CODANEDEP DANE:departamento
AREA_OFICI DANE:area Given in km²
LAT drop? Not sure what this is, probably the admin_centre. If so, it exists already from the April 2010 import.
LON drop? Id.
